-- Thanks for the plug! You are right, one has to follow the instructions in order to get the proper calibration.rrhomes
-- The only way to calibrate the PJ to D65 is to use a colorimeter (or equivalent) like the Eye-One Display 2/LT meter and the appropriate software like CalMAN (see www.spectracal.com
If Art (www.projectorreviews.com
) has reviewed your PJ, then you can look it up on his site and (in the "General Performance" section) for his settings to get close to D65 for your PJ model - without spending the money for a Display 2/LT and the CalMAN software.
Using the GetGray disc, or any other calibration disc (such as the AVS HD 709) by itself, will not provide you with calibration to D65. It will only get you a uniform grayscale. Examining the Grayscale Ramp test patterns will show you any non-uniformity of the grayscale (it should be gray with no color tinting anywhere in the ramps).
Visual calibration will only get you close to the best picture quality that you can get. If you want to get more precise, then you must spend the money, and time (learning to use the measurement tools) to do so. The only other alternative is to hire a professional calibrator.
